. the obama administration said it's necessary to protect a woman's right to decide when and whether to have children, the judges were not convinced. they interpreted it as forcing companies to cover contraceptives. the decision friday echos the tenth circuit court of appeals ruling. that court ruled against the abortion pill mandate in the hobby lobby case and has relied on the ruling in previous other instances. there was another case out of the third and sixth circuit that went the opposite way. the split among federal courts may enhance the chances at the supreme court and will take on the issue. we'll have to see. uma? >> thank you for bringing us up to date on that issue. we'll watch it closely. >>> well, it's your last chance to sound off. should making beer be part of any high school curriculum? tweet us and i'll read some of your thoughts just a few minutes. as a business owner, i'm constantly putting out fires. so i deserve a small business credit card with amazing rewards. with the spark cascard from capital one, i get 2% cash back on ery purchase, every day. i break my back aroun
the obama administration? it is not too over the top. i shouldn't have to do this. i shouldn't have to make these kind of threats. they should provide in a responsible way those who lived through benghazi to be interviewed separate and apart from the obama administration to find out what happened before during and after and i am so sad to say to the families this is the anniversary of the election, a year later the congress really doesn't know anything what happened in benghazi from those who lived through it. >> we are talking about someone like jay johnson, who is the president's nominee to be the new secretary of homeland security or as you can see janet yellen, the new chair of the federal reserve. big jump up. question: how long are you prepared to hold up their nominations and everyone else's, people who are going to be doing and need to do important work for the country? >> the only way this will work is if my republican colleagues get behind me and say to my democratic friend in the senate and the administration we support lindsay's request to be able to talk to the survivors indep

. happy friday. >> one month ago the obama administration launched healthcare.gov. this morning we know exactly how few americans were able to sign up for coverage at the start. >> as cbs news' sharyl attkisson repo reports. jan crawford report reports. good morning. >> that number shot up to 248. again, that's across the country. now, this time last month i was in a clinic in maryland. they had 40 appointments scheduled on day one, all these people so excited to sign up. but at that clinic they weren't able to sign up a single person. a month ago the promise of obama care for many was about to be reality. >> this really means a lot to me to be able to actually sign up for health care. >> but the excitement quickly turned to frustration and it became clear the problem was widespread. no one could find anyone who had signed up. the "washington post" illustrated the illusive enroll lee as an imaginary unicorn. the white house went from disputing there was a problem to full damage control, even giving reporters names of people enrolled. in fact, that's how we found paul in salt lake city.
possibly, helpfully in a way for the obama administration, the website problem is this story abut, people are losing health insurance. that here we have the launch of the affordable care act. and the, the story that is leading the news now is people, losing health insurance. the president just explained its a kind of gross oversimplification of what is actually happening. >> well, not only an oversimplification, lawrence, but also, it is tear bleep misleading. i mean that -- it is terribly misleading. i mean that 5% of americans in the private insurance market. half have been losing their health insurance every year. the private insurance market, the insurance premiums, co-payments and deductibles have been taking huge leaps, 15%, 20% increases every year. so all that the affordable care act does, it says look, you guys you have got to play by standard rules. you have to provide minimum coverage. in terms of competition if you want to go 15%, 20% a year increase, compete directly with others in the exchanges. now, of course the exchanges have got to by up and running for people to see the
obviously embarrass the obama administration so much to take the site down they refuse to discuss it. but, the longer it stays up, the harder it is to fix it. it's hard to fix something if it's going 70 miles an hour. >> so to avoid embarrassment politically they decided we'll just put americans at risk, which invites my question, how at risk are americans by going on to this website? >> the former administrator of social security, he only resigned last february, worked for barack obama until then, said there are predators out there, both hackers and navigators, these people who are supposedly designed to help people access the system, who could literally steal people's data and sell it so that they could create mischief. the problem with the navigators, there are no federal background checks for criminal behavior. >> so they could have hired known thieves and criminals and they have no idea. nobody would have any idea. >> when we did the census in 2010 we did criminal background checks on the people who went door-to-door counting people. we're not doing background checks on the people wi

the house force the obama administration to release updated numbers? >> well, i think that the administration has said all along they'll do a month's worth of data at a time. i think the important thing here, alex, is to understand that when we rolled out medicare part d when massachusetts did its health care, universal health care system, they had similar delays. there were peaks that april came well into the open enrollment and certainly part did was not without its bugs in the system. the idea is not to point a finger of blame but extend a hand of help on behalf of congress. let's get together and get this thing running. people want to embrace the benefits of the act. i hear it more and more. look, i've been asked to vote 46, 47 times over to repeal the affordable care act by the republican majority in our house. they have wanted to destroy this opportunity for our americans to have health care benefits since its inception. and it's time to really get to work and get the system running. >> representative tomko, is there an educated guess as to what the numbers may b

responsible for healthcare.gov rollout became the first obama administration official to testify before congress. until today tavenner had largely avoided scrutiny from republicans who have instead preferred to train their fire on her boss kathleen sebelius. >> i understand you're not publicly releasing those numbers but i'm asking, do you have any idea of on a weekly basis how many people enrolled in how do you not know how many people have enrolled? >> we'll have those numbers available mid november. >> while the sniping over the website persists in committee, republican leadership is out with a new message. we're over the website. >> the problem with obama care isn't just the website, it's the whole law. >> the bottom line is the problems with obama care run deeper than just the website. >> the problems go well beyond a flopped website. >> it is clear obama care and flaws are much more than the website. the website is the tip of the iceberg. >> this week republicans smelled blood in president obama's claim no americans would be kicked off their existing plans. >> let me repeat this.
might think. also this morning, data the obama administration would rather not see in the bank. six. not 60 or 600 or 6,000. just six. that's the number of people who apparently successfully enrolled via healthcare.gov on the first day it went live. you know what they say. the road to hell is paved with good intentions. left over halloween imagery for you there. a deep dive to the effort to fix campaign cash laws that set washington on a course for dysfunction. good morning. it's friday, november 1st. i'm always thinking about another race ahead and another contest. at 1600. let's start with the first reads of the morning. we will talk weekly round up of all things. hillary clinton is not exactly hunkering down and keeping a low profile. in case you missed it, she has an aggressive fall schedule. as impressive as any potential presidential candidate. over the last ten days, a flurry of speeches and fund-raisers has taken her from buffalo new york to chicago to beverly hills. this afternoon, pennsylvania. she key notes the conference for women in philadelphia. it ends a week where we
disaster for the obama administration both in terms of image and impact, all for the very simple reason the website has not worked. the driving principle behind the site is to acquaint uninsured americans with the various health insurance plans available to them to entice them to sign up for what is the signature legislative achieve. of this president. if the success of that plan depends on getting young people to sign up, young and healthy people to buy into this system, expand the poll to offset the cost of older americans, all that is true, it is critically important that the main vehicle actually works. just yesterday, darrell issa's house oversight committee released document, that were meeting notes allegedly from the 4.7 million americans who trapped down the site on its opening day, only six people enrolled on an insurance plan on that day. day two according to issa documents, 248 actual enrollments have taken place. the obama administration has not released its own numbers. if they stand, they are incredibly low, low numbers are not all that unusual t. dwrd that most people don
, for example, 80% in kentucky. this has given rise to, well, conspiracy theorys that the obama administration has been planning all along to push people into medicaid and move us another step closer to single-payer health care. spooky. but here's the deal. you can't really push people from private exchange plans into medicaid because most of the people eligible for exchange subsidies just aren't eligible for medicaid, and that's only going to change if congress expands eligibility again and i wouldn't hold my breath. there's thalgs per sis sent idea that medicaid is a disaster of a medicaid program that hurts people more than it helps, but most people who have medicaid appear to like it. in fact, one study felt that 45% of michigan residents are with individual plans rated them poorly compared with just 16% of those with medicaid, and that's because those individual plans could be really bad for the consumer. and now by law they can't. that's supposed to be an improvement. eric, do you have another caller for me? >> melissa, we have mitch from kentucky. mitch, you're on the air. >> caller: ma
circumstances. better luck next time. you're an obama nominee. in fact, so far in this administration, 32 of his nominees have needed cloiture petitions to end filibusters over nominations. that number in the entire bush presidency just 18. there's that old saying justice delayed is justice denied and couldn't be more true right now in the judicial system. might be a political game to republicans in washington but access to the courts matters to americans of all political persuasions across the country and we saw that firsthand this week. joining is professor spencer overton and drew courtney. thanks to you both. >> thanks for having me. >> thank you. >> spencer, i want to start with you and talking about the decisions this week and the vacancies. i know that you've worked on the confirmation process and you know how hard it can be to get these nominees through. but also, the consequences of who gets put on the bench. >> right. and what we have to understand, karen, is how important the d.c. circuit is. it's important for a few reasons. one, it's a feed tore the u.s. supreme court. four current
it. so we went back to the 2010 obama care regulations and found that the administration actually had estimated that 40% to 67% of those in the individual market would not be able to meet the test to be grandfathered, which is what it takes to keep your own policy, just because of the normal churn in the markets. so they knew a lot of the people in the individual market would not be able to keep their policies but went out there and left the impression that everyone could keep their policy if they liked it. if they had been saying most people can keep their policy if they like it, then it would be accurate. but that's unfortunately not what he's been saying. >> so, lisa, the bottom line here is here that the standard of care through the aca changed so that now all the policies that the insurance companies have to meet that standard of care. if they weren't grandfathered in properly, that means that they are unable to sell them once again. >> that's correct. you're absolutely right. if you do not meet a rather narrow test to be grandfathered, then your new policy has to meet the standa
." tonight the obama administration official in charge of the disastrous health care overhaul was finally dragged in front of lawmakers today. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius testified before a house committee. she dodged questions, made up facts and continueses to be dishonest with the american people. in a moment we'll have people who participated in the grilling but first the highlights. >> madam secretary, while you are from kansas, we are not in kansas anymore. >> let me say directly to these americans you deserve better. >> here we are five weeks into enrollment and the news gets worse by the day. >> the president said if you like your health care plan, you can keep it. is he keeping his promise? >> yes, he is. >> my insurance policy was cancelled. the white house website says if you like your health plan you have, you can keep it. did i hear it wrong? >> i am as frustrated and angry as anyone with the flawed launch of health care.gov. >> i think it's great that you are a team player taking responsibility it is the president's ultimate responsibility, correct?
. >> and they say that by january of next year, there will have been 2 million people deported under the obama administration. rachel, that's the entire population of namibia taken out in five years. and some studies say that as many as 25% of those people deported had u.s.-born children. so, these are families that are being affected. and it's not a sumantical discussion we're having in some university about the pros and cons of, you know, immigration reform as an idea and as a concept. it makes such good financial economic sense, it would help in the deficit, it would help in getting the economy even going a lot faster than it has been going. it would also for conservatives that are worried about amnesty and people paying their dues, it would at least let the united states know who the people are that are here, which are the real bad ones and get them out. and then the ones that have been here, many of whom have children, could continue to contribute much more to this economy now that they could at least come out from under the shadows and not fear deportation. so many reasons. that's why mo
mitchell in washington, where kathleen sebelius fell on her sword for the obama administration today, apologizing to the american people, acknowledging the critical flaws within the health care enrollment website, and it happened under her watch. >> hold me accountable for the debacle. i'm responsible. we did not adequately do end-to-end testing. we were anxious to get the website up and running and functional, which we clearly have failed to do. i know that the only way i can restore confidence that we get it right is to get it right. >> donna served as health and human services secretary during the clinton administration and is now the president of the university of miami. donna, great to see you. thank you very much for being with us. well, you could certainly identify with what kathleen sebelius went through. a former governor of kansas put on the spotlight. what is your perspective from florida, where a lot of people are complaining, for instance, about being kicked off their current insurance. i know you have been a supporter of obama care, but this rollout, could this have bee
to people? >> the obama administration is encouraging parasites to come out. >> keep familying from falling into poverty. >> if that's not putting people back into chains, i don't know what is. >> well, some folks just see the world differently. don't we? great to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching "the ed show" here on msnbc. there's some things in government, there are some things in this country, that you simply cannot separate. farmers and food. real basic stuff. you know that we have the absolute best farmers on the face of the earth? that we can produce more, our technology is so advanced as opposed to the rest of the world. we are the bread basket of the world. we can produce enough food to feed the world if we wanted to. that's how good our farmers are. that's how good our universities are. our research, and our technology. and let's not forget the equipment that is made here in the united states. it is the bread basket. it is the key to america. it is the key to a stable society. we have seen, and history has showed us today that this is what happens when people go hungr
. >> my contention is that the obama administration is encouraging parasites to come out and, you know, take as much as they can with no remorse. >> now, we can debate economic policy. we can debate how you aid those low income americans. but the disdain, the almost demonizing and denigrating of people because of the economic status, that to me is inexcusable, e.j. >> i think so too. they're acting as if all these folks have mansions right next door to donald trump on public benefits. they act as if all these folks don't want to work. one of the insidious things in the house bill is that they say they have a work requirement. but that's not a real work requirement, because states can cut people even if they're unemployed, even if they're looking for work, even if they can't find jobs that they want to take. and the state is under no obligation to help them. that's not a work requirement. that's just punishing people because the unemployment rate is high. and so it's crazy to talk this way about our fellow citizens and i agree with you. i think it's wrong. >> congresswoman, but there is
happened. >> that's key. kirsten. >> the reason why we were sold this is for a lot of people in the obama administration and the democrats they believe the ends justifies the means. their means are good. they have good intentions and yes, we need a better health care system. you know me. i'm a conservative. we need insurance reform coupled with tort reform. we need major change and people are afraid. >> we have the free market. >> we have to sell this hard. >> senator, you have lived the life. >> let me tell you uh -- >> i have lived it. i have abused it as well. >> i don't know about that. this is one of the great abuses and it demonstrates the old cliche power corrupts. absolute power is the worst. we never had absolute power because we didn't have the ability to stop the filibuster in the senate. they had absolute power, didn't give a darn, weren't willing to listen and they adopted a plan that's unfortunately doomed for failure. i say unfortunately. you have heard the story. catch me if you can. you think you will catch young, healthy people, make them sign up and pay more money for w
neighborhood centers to get this health care. and what the obama administration doesn't want to discuss is that health care reform is largely helping poorer people. and i think that that is sort of the tension here, a lot of people are afraid what health care reform really is the next welfare program. >> so the -- the attitude that joy is describing behind reagan's message in 1980, as we saw through the clinton presidency, the dlc, the democratic party tried to respond and did respond in a lot of ways to co-opt a lot of reagan's message, how much of that, how much of what joy is describing is still prevalent in our -- how prevalent is it today? >> i think it is very prevalent. we have one party that says the government is bad. we have other candidates that say the government is bad and doesn't work very well, isn't efficient, joe manchin, folks like that. i'm not sure if obama care works at the end of the day that people's view of the government will change. i think you already had this notion where the sensitive report about this, 149 million people in the u.s. get some kind of governm
the obama care website and has seen its failures firsthand. biden became the highest administration official to formally apologize. listen to what he told hln's christi paul. >> reporter: what did you know prior to the website being launched? >> we were under the impression that it was ready to go. we had the president, to his credit, almost seven weeks out was saying are we ready, and to be told by the pros yeah, this looks like it's all ready to go online, and neither he and i are technology geeks, and we assumed that it was up and ready to run. but the good news is although it's not, and we apologize for that, we're confident that by the end of november, it will be and there will still be plenty of time for people to register and get online. >> reporter: have you tried to get online? >> no. actually, the president tried to get online and my daughter tried to get online. i did not, because it was clear that i wasn't getting online. but it really is inexcusable. there's no -- there's no excuse. they just have to fix it. so we pulled out all the stops and brought in the best people in the co
. >> the republican ways and means committee wants to subpoena the obama administration. they said, look, we're not going to be able to cull all of the information until sometime in november. that was on the understanding the website would be working. >> we know they have the numbers now. that's what the subpoena would ask for. >> do they or don't they? >> when carney was talking upset about the white house -- >> if you're a small coffee shop owner and all you do is sell espresso and a bag of beans, you know how many people have used square on your iphone device to buy coffee. >> the government doesn't? >> the spokesman for the white house admitted as much. he didn't say they were false. he was mad they got leaked. the public doesn't have a right to know how many people are signing up for obama care. these numbers are hidden because they hurt the president. >> there's a pastor who is -- one pastor says the campaign for one thing, you heard the president out on the campaign trail talking about the plan to keep your plan if you like it. he says, he's changing his mind because of the promise. l
to begin with the u.s. spying scandal. the head of the nsa will be grilled on capitol hill. the obama administration now considering whether to end all spying on foreign leaders friendly to the u.s. this comes after revelations that the nsa was tapping german leader angela merkel's cell phone. igniting anger across the whole of europe. the head of the senate intelligence committee, dianne feinstein wants, and i do quote, a total review, end quote, of nsa activities. >>> and a federal judge has struck out key portions of a texas abortion law. the law was passed this year, despite a filibuster by senator wendy davis. you see some of the footage here of that. the texas attorney general, now appealing. the case is likely headed to the u.s. supreme court. >>> and a san diego judge is now the subject of a growing controversy there after performing a wedding for a convicted killer she had just sentenced to life in prison. judge patricia cookson served the cake. relatives of the murder victim are demanding an apology. saying they were rushed out of court. they are filing an ethics complaint.
was reportedly livid about the surveillance and called president obama to register her displeasure. but the spying may have begun as far back as 2002, the early days of the bush administration, before merkel even became chancellor. and that timeline makes this clip from 2006 even creepier! i can't help but wonder if bush had gotten a tip from the nsa about how merkel mentioned on the phone she enjoyed the occasional back rub. here's the craziest part about this whole thing, it's not that we were tapping the german chancellor's phones, which is not necessarily that surprising, even though it involved an ally, it is that, apparently, president obama did not know we were doing it, according to a report from the "wall street journal" out today. the spying on merkel was part of the massive surveillance operation put in place by president george w. bush after the september 11th attacks, which members of the bush administration continue to defend to this day. >> we do have a fantastic intelligence capability worldwide against all kinds of potential issues and concerns. we are vulnerable,
